Newly revised in 2006. Includes new chapters on promoting a child's social and emotional competence and ways to help children be successful in school.

New chapters cover topics such as:
• How to help your child learn to regulate emotions, make friends and cope with peer problems; • How to partner with your child’s teacher to promote social and academic success; • How to promote your child’s school readiness through interactive reading and child-directed play coaching; • How to teach social skills to a child who is fearful and shy as well as a child who is hyperactive, impulsive, and inattentive.
